Hull City 2-2 West Brom
Hull City halted a poor run of six straight defeats to collect their first point in their 2-2 draw against fellow relegation strugglers West Brom on Saturday.
Both the teams were keen to avoid a defeat and were happy to sit back and attack on the counter, leading to a number of long range efforts none of which managed to be on target. The first real chance of the match fell to West Brom's Jay Simpson who somehow managed to hit his shot over the bar from close range.
Hull finally managed to take the lead a minute before the half time whistle when Bernard Mendy latched on to a long through ball from Ian Ashbee, beating Scott Carson before tapping it into an empty net.
West Brom pressed forward in search of an equalizer and were rewarded eight minutes into the second half when James Morrison played in Simpson after some good work on the edge of the penalty area and the striker made no mistake from close range to pull his side back on level terms.
However Hull were back in front 16 minutes later with Mendy turning creator by crossing the ball for Craig Fagan to head home from close range. West Brom immediately struck back four minutes later with referee Peter Walton awarding the visitors a penalty after Koren was fouled by Zayatte and Chris Brunt calmly converted from the spot.
Hull were happy to settle for a draw and though West Brom stepped up a gear in search of a winner, the Tigers managed to hold on to claim their first point in seven league games.
